I didn't like that background color so I removed it and went with the more neutral green of my studio walls.
I didn't see the leaning tower of yellow thread until my wife kindly pointed it out to me. Every artist should marry a person with a great eye for perspective. They should teach you that in art school.

Self Critique time:
I like the idea or theme of this painting, but that's about it. I should have been more painterly and not so concerned with details. I find when I concentrate too much on seeing and painting details, I lose connection with the spirit of the objects I am attempting to paint.
I should remember to treat each still life as a portrait.
This is the second painting in a row involving sewing. Painting these has me thinking how challenging it would be to paint a series. Paintings based on a theme. Check out daily painter
